What is your opinion on Wealth disparities?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I am curious about your opinions on wealth inequality and the resulting topics which stem off from this. I have compiled all of which I am interested in within a short survey, with some additional information required to understand where you yourself come from. I appreciate and encourage additional comments and discussion at the end of the survey and within this thread. This, in turn would help me come up with my own decisions around the areas of this topic and will help the wider community with anyone interested having the option to receive the results.

Thanks for reading!

Hello Gradcafe Community,

I noticed that I received 200 views on this thread and I'll honestly state that maybe at most one person clicked on the link. Foremostly I would like to state that I am not condonding this behaviour after all participation is voluntary. And all I'm going to do is encourage involvement, with the survey ending soon. All survey results are appreciated, anonymous and the survey should only take 5 minutes of your time. Also, you will contribute to making my day slightly better! If you are interested feel free to click the link and answer a series of short questions.

 

Thanks for reading, have a good day.

Took the survey, but I feel that this would be a great discussion here too.

 

So, my opinion of it is that we don't have the clear answer yet, but just a lot of problems. The income disparity is atrocious. The 'glass ceiling' idea isn't just about women getting a career, but there's another one in progressing to another income tier. Higher education is typically seen as a Cinderella story, but it really isn't. People have more debt than they can feasibly pay back, more stress than they can emotionally deal with, and aren't making a wage to balance it in the long run. I see many bachelors level friends struggling to find a job in the field, and are shot in the foot. Instead working 3-4 part-time gigs to try and pay back loans for a degree that isn't helping them. There are a few that break in, but that's a mixture of working themselves to death during undergrad and lucky breaks.

 

Poverty isn't caused but any one choice, but a set of situations. Sometimes those situations were completely unavoidable, sometimes the best option isn't clear and not taken, sometimes a person continues behavioral patterns that becomes a problem. It is not their fault. 

 

I don't think it's a moral obligation. Morals suggest an intrinsic obligation to ourselves. It is something we should do for society, to leave another generation less stressed than we are. But I wouldn't put this on a moral level.

if you're not getting the responses that you want have you considered using Amazon's Mechanical Turk? it's not free, but you can get a lot of data easily.
